Definitely not to be discouraging for people who are completely new to visual effects or software but to ensure standards are high, and raised over time.
some good points being made - i will speak to the admins about new threads but you guys know what will work best in the forums.
I think the best option would be for a couple more moderators to be brought on board to approve posts made by people with under 50 or so posts. To keep these "what is google lolz?" people happy, I think we need another sort of "beginners talk" thread, that isn't monitored in the "New Posts" section of the User CP where these people can ask freely.
